You don’t have to be an astronaut to go to the moon! National Geographic has created a really cool interactive Atlas of the Moons — ALL of the moons in our solar system. Earth is the only planet in our solar system with just one moon — and you can learn much more about it in the Atlas, including seeing where the historic landing happened 50 years ago. But don’t stop there! There are almost 200 moons in our solar system and they have mysteries and wonders to explore! So without even leaving your laptop, you too can be a space explorer! As we celebrate the anniversary of the first landing on the moon, we hope that it inspires a whole new generation of Americans to cherish the Earth and to dream big and believe that there is nothing we cannot do if we put our minds to it.
